THAT’S THE WAY TO DO IT
Split screen - Mini DV - Video 10 minutes
I collaborated with Marcia Farquhar on a short film as part of her 12 Shooters Project. She bought her Punch and Judy booth to Hastings and performed on the beach at Rock-a-Nore for almost six hours whilst we waited for the tide to come and take her away.
Andrew Kötting’s short film ‘That’s the Way to Do It’, is based on Farquhar’s life-size Punch & Judy performance The Cabinet of Horribly Violent Glove Puppets. This is a feminist work. It is not sanitised. Both Judy and the baby die.
